DISCHARGED OFFICIAL HURLS HOT CHARGES Former JaiJ Superintendent Roasts Dumbrell of the Morals Committee Echoes of past political differences were made to ring: In the corridors of the hall of justice last evening when Augrust J. Gilfether, former superin tendent of the county jail, launched a verbal attack in the direction of Chair man John 11. Dumbrell of the public morals committee of the grand jury. Gilfethor said that it was Dumbrell who was partly responsible for his dis charge by Sheriff Eggers. He declared that there was all manner of misman agement at the county jail ana that he, Gilfether, had been unable through 'outside influence," to put a stop to practices of prisoners who were evad ing every rule of the prison. Gilfether won his point to the extent of a promise that next Monday his charges will be given a formal hearing, and, if supported by fact, will not be allowed to go by the , board. The public morals committee during its session reviewed the charges of De tective Captain Mooney in the matter of J-iines La Strange, accused by a lodging house keeper of assault with Intent to kill. The committe prom ised to go over the evidence carefully and investigate all points in the rase. The committee made no report of its preliminary investigation, but said that the matter was one that had been under consideration for some time and that it had been decided to ease the public mind by thrashing it out in a way that would settle once and for all the question of the use of outside influences with the police force. "ONLY RICH CAN AFFORD TO DIE—WITH DECENCY" "High Cost of Living Exceeded »>r Price of Funeral*, , ' Avers Hostees at Gathering of Boston Matrons (Special Dispatch to The Call) BOSTON, Jan. 6.—"Everybody's t;ilk ! ing of the hig;h cost of living. That's i not a circumstance to the cost of dying. ■ Now only the rich can afford to die— 1 with decency." Mrs. Charlotte Smith, a dignified 5 Boston hostess, whose home is one of j the most beautiful in New England i and whose private income runs pretty 1 close to six figures, said this to a, dozen I and more matrons who met In the ] drawing room of Mrs. Frank W. Page. ! a leader of several helpful movements i here, to consider the cost of dying. Frederick L. Briggs, an undertaker, ! was the one man present. He told how the desire to have "a grand funeral" permeates the rich and prostrates in deeper depths of sorrow and misery the poorest of the poor. FIND PREHISTORIC SKULL Man Believed to Have Lived Millions of Years Ago. LONDON* Jan. 6.—The skull of a paleolithic man—by far the earliest trace of mankind that has yet been found in England—has been discovered in a gravel pit in Sussex. The discovery has caused excitement among scientists. The skull is that of a man who lived, probably, millions of years ago, and it may prove to be the oldest remnant of a human frame ever found on this planet. It belongs, rough ly, to the same age as the famous Neanderthal skull, but represent* a much more primitive type of mankind. It will be exhibited at the meeting of one of the learned societies next month. WOMAN'S PASSION FOR DOGS CALLED DISEASE LONDON. Jan. 6. — Women lavish on their dogs a degree of affection for which a man, a woman or a child may clamor in vain." Such was Judge Plow den's comment at Marylebone police court in fining a Mrs. Farraley of Ade laide road, Hampstead, $3 on a charge of assaulting ScharplOAvsky, a stock broker, also of Adelaide road, with a dog whip. Scharplowsky said that, seeing his dog and Mrs. Ferraley's fighting in Merton road he parted them with his stick. Mrs. Ferraley ran up and beat him with her dog whip for a distance of 2Z yards down the road. '"Tliis passion for dogs," concluded Plowden dryly, "is become a disease among women." One-lialf tbr women in tho v.orhl ■want to get thin; the other half want to sot fat.

FOSS' COUP FAILS TO LAND CHAIR Berkeley Member Only De lays Re-election of Mullins to Head Supervisors OAKLAND, Jan. 6.—Supervisor Foss of Berkeley today launched his cam paign for chairman of the board of supervisors without previous notice to Supervisors Mullins and Murphy with whom he has been working as a ma jority of the board. Foss' campaign came to grief without doing more than delaying the re-election of Chairman John F. Mullins. Supervisor Bridge had placed Mullins in nomination, when Foss ran across to Murphy and whispered to him. Mur phy had planned to second the nomi nation of Mullins. After listening to Foss , , Murphy sat still. Supervisor Kelley refused to second tho nomina tion of Mullins and Bridge's motion went without a second. There was a scurrying around and then the board decided to take a receML When thu members irconvened after a spirited debate Mullins was re-elected without opposition. Subsequently it developed that Foss had obtained Kel ley's vote and lacked only the vote of Murphy to take the honors to him self. Mullina and Foes shook hands afterward and were apparently as good friends as ever. During the afternoon session the board reapjxjinted 'all county employes , except F. B. Wilson, iiead janitor of the county jail. It was decided that "trusties" could do his work. These committees were appointed by Chairman Mullins: Auditing and ilnance, Murphy, Foss and Bridge; franchise and license. Kelley, Murphy and Bridge; roads, bridges and inflrm nry, Bridge Murphy and Foss; build ings, jail unci receiving hospital, Fosfc, Murphy and Kelley. Rules for the board's procedure were adopted. STAR 13 HODOO, POLICEMAN AVERS Oakland Bluecoat, Poisoned in Row With Man Who Had $13, Asfys Change OAKLAND, Jan. 6.—Patrolman Gar diner is anxious to give away his star, numbered 13, because he is sure that it is a hoodoo number. Blood poisoning developed in one of his hands today following an encounter he had with Charles Delower, whom he arrested New Year eve. While Delower was being searched he lurched suddenly and his teeth came in contact with Gardiner's hand, bruis ing it. It was discovered Delower had exactly $13 on his person. Gardiner has asked Chief of Police Petersen for another number. Peter sen pooh-poohed the request, telling Gardiner that when he had entered the department he had the same star and it had brought him nothing but good luck. BACHELORS GO ON STRIKE Blackballing Hostesses Who Make "En tertainment" Too Expensive LONDON Jan. 6.—lt Is asserted that an absolutely unique strike has been begun in this city. It Is nothingr less than a strike on the part of eligible young men of the west end. It is, says the Daily Mirror, aimed at those wealthy hostesses of Belgravia and Mayfair who for some time past have, by their thorough -want of all consideration—to put it politely—made the Uvea of their young bachelor guests a burden to them. The chief grievances are the growing and excessive cost of being asked out and the mulcting of youthful bachelors for various uninter esting funds. The strike started at a club. Two young men were recounting to each other their experiences of the previous night. Both had suffered at the hands of their hostesses. They were so much struck with each other's plight that th<> idea of joining forces and of banding other young bachelors together in self defense came naturally. The idea was taken up with enthusiasm, and every day new members are obtained. The determined eligibles have drawn up a list of houses and hostesses who are to be avoided. Not a single mem ber of the league will ever accept an invitation at one of these addresses. The Daily Mirror found one of the members of the league recently. He had suffered very badly in the past, and had Just added a fresh name to the blackballed list. "We have banded our selves together," he said, "for the de fense of all young bachelors who are in the habit of being invited out fairly extensively. For some time hostesses have been getting more and more in considerate. The wealthy ones are by % far the worst.

SELF-STARTING FRANKLIN HERE Latest Product of Syracuse Factory Appears With Ef ficient Electrical Device President J. I. Handley of American and Marion Factories Here LEON J. PINKSON Embodying all the latest features in motor car construction the first of the new series Franklin motor cars arrived yesterday and will be placed on display at the local Franklin branch in Cali fornia street today. The new Franklins are of the 08 horsepower six cylinder type, and the distinctive feature of the models is their electric self-starting and lighting systems. In addition to these added conveniences the Syracuse factory has spread itself in the matter of finish with the one object In view, that of caring- for the comfort of the occupants of the car. The starting and lighting system adopted by the experts of the Franklin factory is the Entz device, and the starter is easily one of the most simple and efficient pieces of mechanism that has been seen here this season. Ac cording to the factory engineers, it siniplilips driving ,"0 per cent and It prevents any stalling of the air cooled Franklin motor. In discussing the new equipment yesterday J. Furcate, acting , manager of the San Francisco factory branch dur ing the absence of John F. McLain, who is now en route to Syracuse, said: "The Entz starter used on the new Franklin sixes, both the 3S and 30 horsepower cars, is a simple, accessible, single unit system that starts tho motor going and keeps it in operation. It is per manently connected with the engine by a direct drive system and there are no gears to clash. One switch starts the engine, and there are no other controls to operate. "When the switch is off the starter is disconnected and the magneto is short circuited so that neither the starter nor the ignition system are In operating condition. In throwing on the switch to start the engine the mag neto short circuit is broken and as soon as the starter speeds up the engine it starts firing and runs under its own power. In order to stop, it is only necessary to throw tho switch off. "In crowded traffic, if you want to slow the engine down to a point where it would ordinarily stall, tho starter picks it right up and sets it running under its own power again. "The system consists of a motor gen erator, storage battery, a switch and only such wires as are necessary to connect the switch to the starter and battery. The motor generator is to designed that It changes from a motor, turning the engine to a generator, charging the battery and back again to a starter when necessary, without the use of any automatic or auxiliary devices. "The circuits in the lighting system are independent of the circuits in the starting system. The lights are oper ated by puftb button switches located on (he heel*board of the driver's sent. The starting switch is conveniently placed on the d^sh." A. & Chi.sholm, head of the Franklin sales force, put one of the car.s through a series of tests yesterday and the starter never missed its function in several unusual experiments. * * * Hanilley \ uitiDK City—<J, T.

PRAYER FOR VOTE URGED Dr. Anna >Jimv Favors Daily Snppli- cation by Suffragettes (Special Dispatch to The Call) NEW YORK, .fan. 6.—Prayers for suffrage Is the latest plan of the suf frage leaders of this country who are following in the footsteps of the Eng lish suffragettes. Dr. Anna Shaw, president of the National Suffrage as sociation, is advocating daily noonday prayers for the next three years. Doc tor Shaw held a Methodist pastorate for several years. "If the suffragists of New York state," she said, "'would agree to offer an earnest prayer for the cause every day at noon I am sure it would help enormously. "If several thousand women offered prayers every day for the cause ana all those interested it would at least make persons who misunderstand the motives or character of suffragettes have a greater respect for them." Several suffrage leaders who in dorsed Doctor Shaw' 3 plan said they would have minute prayer meetings every day at headquarters. BICOLORED HATS FOR MEN .'»«■« Style in l'aria Han Some Startling; Variation* PARIS, Jan. 6.—Checkered or parti colored b«tfl for men are the latest in novation in Boulevard fashions. "Cha peau bicolores," as they are called, have brims and crowns of totally different shades, gray and black, green and gray, Mack and blue, gray and white begin the combinations most in favor. Other hats are covered with a large chess board pattern in which these colors al ternate. Some Frenchmen are already wear- Ing them, and the manufacturers say that as soon as the fashion has defi nitely taken root they will introduce far bolder types with four or five bril liant colors, arranged in squares or rings. Americans here have thus far fought shy of these hats, although it is thought probable that the style will not take lons to cross the Atlantic. FIGHTS THREE BAXDITS f OftKLAND, Jan. 6.— F. E.

Every mother must sooner or later ask herself this question, and it is one which must involve a good deal of anxious consideration. It may be that on the advice of friends various foods are tried to see if baby takes kindly to them.

Infants reared on Sarory & Moore's Food are characterised by strong, sturdy limbs, firm flesh, plenty of bone and mus cle, easy teething, freedom from infant ailments, and that happy disposition which is the surest sign of perfect health.
